While Aerox and R15 get new colour options, MT15 has gotten a new, more affordable variant without LED indicator and Bluetooth connectivityYamaha R15, Aerox new colours – MT15 base variant showcased to dealersOne of the key facets of Yamaha’s market strategy has been to introduce updates at regular intervals. Even minor updates can help refresh the portfolio and provide more value to enthusiasts. Working on the same lines, Yamaha has launched updates for Aerox, MT15 and R15 at a dealer event in Delhi, along with showcasing new products – R3, R7, R1M, MT03, MT07 and MT09.Yamaha R15 White, Aerox Silver, MT15 New Variant – Launch Price 1.43 L To Rs 1.86 LAerox, R15 new colour optionsAmong the most basic updates for a two-wheeler is new colour options. Aerox gets a new silver colour option and a traction control system (TCS). TCS will help to further maximise performance by minimising wheelspin and better control in any riding condition. Prices start from Rs 1,42,800, ex-sh for the Silver Aerox with TCS.New Yamaha Aerox Solver colour for IndiaWhile silver can be dull, it’s not the case with this new colour shade for Aerox. That’s because the new colour theme has a vibrant mix of contrasting black shade, as evident on the fairing and side panels. Moreover, the scooter gets sporty graphics and lettering.Another key highlight is the golden coloured wheels, a first for Aerox. Silver shade is a welcome addition for Aerox, as current colour options are limited to dark shades. It includes Metallic Black, Racing Blue and Grey Vermillion.2023 Yamaha R15 White ColourIn case of R15, Yamaha has introduced a new white colour, called Intensity White. New Yamaha R15 Intensity White gets Quick Shifter and is priced from Rs 1,85,900, ex-sh. Current options of R15 are Metallic Red and Dark Knight are priced at Rs 1,80,900 and Rs 1,81,900, respectively. R15 Racing Blue is priced at Rs 1,85,900.The new R15 white appears quite different in comparison to existing colour options of Metallic Red, Dark Knight and Racing Blue. White is not necessarily a mainstream colour for a bike, but can appeal to folks who want an entirely different look and feel. R15 white variant gets graphics in grey shade and has orange-coloured wheels. Golden USD forks against the white shade create an exciting contrast.Yamaha MT15 Gets New Variant – Without BluetoothWhile equipping a bike with advanced features has its merits, the resulting increased pricing may not work for everyone. To free MT15 from such constraints, Yamaha has launched a new variant of the bike, which misses out on features such as LED indicators and Bluetooth connectivity. People with limited budget shouldn’t mind sacrificing these features in lieu of the reduced cost of ownership.Cheaper Yamaha MT15 variant – without LED blinkers, bluetoothThis new MT15 variant without the Bluetooth connect, is priced at Rs 1,63,400, ex-sh. It gets two exciting colors – Dark Matte Blue & Metallic Black colour. With the launch of this variant, customers will have a choice to select from Bluetooth (Y-Connect) equipped variant and non-equipped (Y-Connect) variant. This variant will retain the features like Dual Channel ABS for added safety, TCS ensuring maximum performance and OBD2 for quick access to the machine’s vital data. MT15 Bluetooth variants come in four colour options, all of which are priced at Rs 1,68,900. Hat tip to Nikam Yamaha and Jijo Thomas for sharing the exclusive photos. More
The single-cylinder 4V, liquid cooled 155cc engine with VVA making 18.4 PS and 14.2 Nm, is retained with 2023 Yamaha R152023 Yamaha R15Yamaha’s YZF-R range of motorcycles has a huge fan following globally. Yamaha neatly incorporates a single design language across the YZF-R lineup to make them look cohesive. This family DNA is especially a great draw with smaller capacity YZF-R range like R15, R125 and the likes.They come at a cost though. Despite being considerably pricier than a few similarly specced motorcycles, Yamaha has managed to attract a lot of buyers. The company strives to better this sub-quarter-liter lineup of its sporty machines. 2023 Yamaha R15 is no exception as there are now new feature additions that up the ante, and proportionately price too. Let’s take a look.2023 Yamaha R15Yamaha R15 is the company’s flagship product in India. It comes with a plethora of mechanical enhancements like variable valve actuation (VVA), liquid cooling, slipper clutch, quick shifter (only upshifts and not downshifts) and some more. Pricing for R15M goes till Rs. 1,93,400 (ex-sh).At this price point, buyers would want some features like LED turn indicators and a TFT screen. Both of these features were missing on R15. Now, 2023 Yamaha R15M V4 gets these features. However, these features are not standard. These feature additions are only for top-spec versions based on R15M. Even now, standard R15 V4 variants get halogen indicators and LCD instrument cluster like before.[embedded content][embedded content]Thanks to K2K Motovlogs, we have a walkaround video of the same. We know that Yamaha should have offered these features from day one, at least with M variants. These additions for R15 will be associated with a price hike. Expect 2023 Yamaha R15M to cost north of Rs. 2 lakh (ex-sh). Especially in top-spec R15M trim like Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition.2023 Yamaha R15 new TFT DisplayThere is improved switchgear to better control this new TFT screen with M models. This new switchgear helps navigate through the system better. This new display is likely to be around 5” in size and shows various parameters and comes with Bluetooth connectivity and a smartphone app as well. Details about turn-by-turn navigation are still mum, though. Yamaha has also launched 2023 R15 in a new matte black colour with gold accents and gold alloys.MT-15 Gets Dual-Channel ABSAlong with R15M, MT-15 gets the same LED blinkers. But Yamaha doesn’t offer a TFT display with MT-15 Ver 2.0. Sure, Yamaha has upgraded the MT-15 with dual-channel ABS. But if you want a TFT screen, you have to shell out more and go with R15 V4. As of now Yamaha MT-15 Ver 2.0 prices go till Rs. 1,66,400 (ex-sh) after a recent price hike.With these new upgrades and new editions, expect pricing to cross Rs. 1.7 lakh mark with top-spec Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Edition. It is yet to be seen if dual-channel ABS on MT-15 is standard or optional. Mechanically, both R15 V4 and MT-15 are identical to previous models. The same 155cc engine with 18.4 PS of power and 14.2 Nm of torque, mated to a 6-speed gearbox is standard. More
The first units of 2023 Yamaha R15, MT 15 and FZ-X have arrived at select dealerships and a launch is likely to happen on Feb 132023 Yamaha R15, MT15, FZ-X Launch SoonYamaha banks on its premium 2W range like no other. Today, Yamaha is probably the only 2W manufacturer with significant volumes, without offering budget commuters or scooters. The company’s premium motorcycle range includes YZF-R15, MT-15 and FZ-X.Yamaha is keen on reviving some of its legacy brands like RX into India, and is actively considering ways to introduce an ADV within the 125-155cc segment as well. Ahead of all that, Yamaha is now making its premium motorcycle range updated for MY2023. In that regard, 2023 Yamaha R15, MT15 and FZ-X are getting new Editions. Let’s take a look.2023 Yamaha R15, MT15Recently in Indonesia, we saw Yamaha launching a new Aggressive Grey variant for R15. It was a stunning combo with black USD forks, Grey base paint and trickles of Neon on fairing. Alloys were completely Neon too. This is not the same Edition Yamaha is launching in India. Spy shots reveal golden USD forks like on every other R15.The base paint is still Grey, similar to Aggressive Grey launched in Indonesia with little splashes of Yellow. Instead of matching alloy wheel colour with this Yellow, Yamaha is offering a golden finish. Something similar is offered with the R15M World GP 60th Edition. There is a gloss black element on the front fairing above the headlight, similar to R15M Metallic Grey.2023 Yamaha R15 Arrives At DealerMY2023 new edition MT 15, however, gets a gloss black shade. It resembles the Metallic Black colour Yamaha offers. But the new edition gets Red alloys found on the Ice Fluo – Vermillion variant. It isn’t as flashy as the Cyan-painted wheels on the Cyan Storm variant, though. A combination of Metallic Black and Fluorescent Red wheels was not offered before by Yamaha.2023 Yamaha MT15 Arrives At DealerFZ-X is getting a new edition for MY2023 as well. This new model has also reached a few dealerships ahead of launch and has been papped alongside MY2023 R15 and MT 15. It gets a new Blue shade and doesn’t resemble Yamaha FZ-X’s Metallic Blue option. Instead, it resembles the Racing Blue shade offered with the MT 15 and R15.New FZ-X Gets Dual-Channel ABSApart from this new colour, new MY2023 FZ-X will also feature dual-channel ABS, something which was missing in outgoing model. Dual-channel ABS is likely to be offered as standard and is not exclusive to this new edition. That said, Yamaha might limit dual-channel ABS just for this new edition and pit it as top-spec trim for FZ-X.2023 Yamaha FZ-X Arrives At DealerMechanically, there won’t be any changes on R15 and MT-15. Only FZ-X will get an upgrade in braking hardware in the form of dual-channel ABS. Both R15 and MT 15 will continue to offer 18.4 PS of power and 14.2 Nm of torque from its 155cc liquid-cooled VVA engine, mated to a 6-speed transmission. FZ-X will continue to offer 12.4 PS of power and 13.3 Nm of torque with a 5-speed gearbox. More
Yamaha YZF-R15S Version 3.0 is based on old YZF-R15 Version 3.0 sold alongside YZF-R15 Version 4.0Yamaha R15 S New Colour – Matte BlackYamaha has successfully established itself as a premium motorcycle manufacturer in India. With no budget commuters to offer, India Yamaha Motor’s motorcycle (IYM) portfolio now starts from the FZ which is priced at Rs. 1.12 lakh. But the company’s YZF range of motorcycles has been the perfect portal for owning an entry-level sporty machine that can set your favourite track on fire.At its 4th generation, YZF-R15 V4 has taken the OG R15’s legacy which was sold as R15S when R15 V2 was launched. Thus starting the saga of S versions of R15 bikes. When R15 V3 was launched, R15 V2 became the R15S V2 and now that R15 V4 is the top dog, Yamaha still sells the previous-gen V3 model as R15S V3.But over the years, the value proposition of the R15 range is getting thinner and thinner. Today, if you want to buy a R15 V4, you have to shell out over Rs. 1.77 lakh (ex-sh). For just Rs. 7,000 more, you can buy a Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 that has a similar ethos too. As cliche as it may sound, there’s no replacement for displacement. Its just true.Yamaha R15S New Black Colour LaunchYamaha R15 V3 was a good motorcycle when launched. It lacked USD forks and some other kit that global models got and after the launch of R15 V4 in India, R15 V3 is still manufactured and sold alongside the newer model under new R15S V3 name.Yamaha R15 S New Colour – Matte BlackR15S V3 is a fully faired track-focused machine that was aimed at providing the feel of the sport bike to the masses. It has a potent and taut Delta Box frame and good dynamics. It is powered by a 155cc single-cylinder SOHC 4V petrol engine making 18.1 bhp of power at 10,000 RPM and 14.1 Nm of torque at 8500 RPM. This engine gets a modern liquid cooling system to keep the temps in check as it is a high-compression and high-revving engine.This engine was coupled with a smooth 6-speed gearbox. It got 17” wheels with 100 section and 80 profile tyre and a fat 140 section and 70 profile tyre at the rear. It also came with a telescopic suspension setup at front and a monoshock setup at the rear. Adding to its track racing ability was its low 142 kg kerb weight which made sure that attacking corners was just as easy as expected from a sporty machine.New Matte Black ColourIt came with a single colour option named Racing Blue and in Yamaha’s surveys, they received valuable info that customers expected a new colour with the R15S. Keeping the product fresh and responding to their surveys, IYM has launched a new Matte Black option on top of the Racing Blue that was already available. This new shade makes the R15S V3 look stealthy and a lot more sportier.Yamaha Motorcycle Prices July 2022Along with the launch of this new shade, Yamaha has also raised the price of the motorcycle to Rs. 1,60,900 (ex-sh) in July 2022 which is Rs. 1,000 more than what it used to be in June 2022. This price hike is over the price hike most Yamaha products received last month. The updated price applies to both Racing Blue and Matte Black options. More
This new sport pack will benefit everyone that wants a little more oomph from their R125 on their favourite race track2022 Yamaha R125 Sport PackYamaha’s YZF-R series of motorcycles are very popular here in India and around the world. Of the lot, we only get one YZF-R series motorcycle in India, the rest of the series is quite impressive. Starting from the bottom, we have YZF-R125, YZF-R15, YZF-R25, YZF-R3, YZF-R6 and the creme de la creme YZF-R1 and YZF-R1M.Even though India only gets YZF-R15, it is one of the most sought after sports motorcycles in the country. With a huge fan following, Yamaha YZF-R15 is currently in its 4th gen model and is going strong with consistent sales figures. But India never got the YZF-R125 that is on sale globally. In Europe, it is very popular too and to keep the popularity, Yamaha has launched a Sport Pack for the motorcycle.2022 Yamaha R125 Sport PackIt’s a known fact by now that Yamaha’s YZF-R series of motorcycles have a sporty pedigree. The baby YZF-R is no exception at all. R125 is a commendable track bike and competes well with KTM RC 125.To aid the rider on his track day, Yamaha has thrown in a Sport Pack. Yamaha already sold track specific accessories like an optional Akrapovic exhaust. Coupled with the Sport Pack, R125 is expected to be a completely different animal.[embedded content][embedded content]As part of the package, it gets a new windscreen with a larger bubble that aids the rider in deflecting wind over his/her helmet when ducked. It also gets new frame sliders which have a carbon fibre finish, a tank pad with a carbon fibre finish, new stickers on wheels and new LED indicators. R125 gets some weight saving in terms of a new tail tidy unit too.Yamaha’s R125 which is on sale in Europe, is not based on the YZF-R15 V4 that is on sale in India. Instead, it is based on R15 Gen 3 which is now sold as YZF-R15S in India. It is powered by a 124.7 cc single-cylinder engine that is liquid cooled and is mated to a 6-speed gearbox with a slip and assist clutch. This entry level sports bike makes 14.96 PS and 11.5 Nm. When compared to its main rival, RC 125 from KTM, R125 makes 0.4 PS more power but makes 0.5 Nm less torque.Price & LaunchThe price of this 2022 Yamaha R125 Sport Pack is around GBP 391 (approx Rs. 37,000) and for everything that it comes with, is quite justifiable. But what isn’t even remotely justifiable is the price of the motorcycle. In Europe, YZF-R125 costs around GBP 5,000 (approx Rs. 4.73 lakh) and the Sport Pack adds GBP 391 more. This takes the overall price to GBP 5391 (approx Rs. 5.10 lakh). It gets two attractive colour options Icon Blue and Yamaha Black.Fully loaded 2022 Yamaha R125 Sport PackYamaha is highly unlikely to launch the R125 in India. We don’t see it happening at all as the 125 cc category is often compared to a commuter in India. No matter what equipment it gets, the Indian track scene is still immature and the craze for a low-capacity super sports machine is very thin. More
If an adventure tourer based on Yamaha R15 ever makes it to production, it will go up against Honda CB200X in the Indian marketYamaha R15 Adventure Motorcycle – RenderWhen it comes to entry-level sports bikes, Yamaha R15 invariably pops up in the mind of an enthusiast at first. Currently, in its fourth generation, this motorcycle is the perfect entry point for riders looking to perfect their track riding skills. The baby superbike received a generation upgrade six months ago and continues to generate decent monthly volume.What’s more fascinating is its underpinnings and powertrain that spawn across multiple models in Yamaha’s global lineup. It is available in a fully-faired sports bike form, a naked streetfighter form and a naked neo-retro roadster form along with a wide range of scooters.This makes us wonder if this platform and engine can be utilised for an entry-level adventure bike in future? At least Abin Design thinks so, who has created a digital rendering of an adventure sports bike based on R15. Images of this illustration are courtesy of the designer’s social media handles. It is clearly visible that this rendered design takes inspiration from R15.Yamaha R15 Adventure MotorcycleThe designer has given a lot of attention to small details. For starters, front end of this rendition is reminiscent of Honda CB200X with its aggressive front fascia featuring a sporty front cowl and compact wind protector. However, the single-pod LED headlamp flanked by sleek LED DRLs has been borrowed from the new-gen R15 V4. Creases and air vents on side fairing have also been inspired by the latest iteration of the sports bike.Yamaha R15 Adventure Motorcycle – RenderIt gets typical ADV highlights like a tall and wide handlebar, a sculpted fuel tank, a sleek rear cowl, a split-seat setup, semi-fairing on the sides and a raised tail section. The blacked-out elements including alloy wheels, underbelly protection, side panels and other internals provide a sporty appeal to the overall design. Semi-fairing comes with some sleek body graphics with R15 inscribed on it.This rendition of Yamaha R15 ADV has been rendered in two colour options- Red and Blue. Evidently, the designer has utilised an underbelly exhaust instead of side-on upswept exhaust canisters usually seen on contemporary ADVs. However, this iteration of Yamaha R15 has been termed as an adventure sports bike which means it is a sports tourer meant for munching long miles on tarmac instead of trail bashing on off-road conditions.Hardware & Powertrain SpecsIn this regard, R15 Adventure Sports has been equipped with road-biased slick tyres at both ends. Suspension duties are carried out by golden-coloured upside-down forks up front and a mono-shock absorber at the rear with preload adjustability. Braking duties are handled by single disc brakes at both ends aided by a dual-channel ABS as standard.Yamaha R15 Adventure Motorcycle – RenderPowering the Adventure Sports Tourer will be a familiar 155cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor with VVA technology. This engine pumps out 18.1 bhp and a peak torque of 14.2 Nm. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed gearbox that benefits from a slip and assist clutch.Source More

With new colour schemes on offer, Yamaha R15S V3 will become a more tempting buy for customers not willing to spend more on the new V4 modelYamaha R15S V3 Metallic Red. Image for reference.Six months ago, Yamaha launched a new generation model of R15 in India named YZF R15 V4. The entry-level sportbike received a fair bit of upgrades and a substantial price hike to go with. To offer a more affordable version of R15, Yamaha launched R15S V3 in the market which is based on the previous third-gen model of the baby superbike.This came at a slightly smaller price tag and a few misses as compared to the current fourth-gen model. When launched a few months back, Yamaha had offered only a single variant with a single Racing Blue colour option for R15S V3. The Japanese bikemaker has decided to add two more shades to the palette of this mini superbike.Yamaha R15S V3 – New Colour SchemesThe fully-faired motorcycle will be made available in two new paint schemes including Dark Knight Black and Red. These new colour options are expected to go on sale April 11 onwards and could be priced at a slight premium over the Racing Blue colour scheme which is tagged at Rs Rs 1.58 lakh (ex-showroom).Apart from new paint schemes, no other updates are expected to be made in R15S. Addition of new colour options should aid the motorcycle in attracting more customers in the country.

The former gets a familiar twin-beam LED headlamp at front as opposed to a single beam headlamp housed inside the front apron of V4. Additionally, R15S V3 gets a unibody single-piece saddle as opposed to a split-style seating setup in R15 V4.Other visual highlights of R15S include a raised windscreen, a side-mounted exhaust canister, a muscular fuel tank, a stepped-up seat and arrowhead-shaped rearview mirrors.
